Introduction to Project Management

May 09May 10

(2 days)
Fee (USD): $1950


The most important thing to know about project management is that first and foremost it’s a way of thinking about projects. Whether it is implementing a marketing plan, launching a new product, implementing a new accounting system or any project, the methodology behind project management will greatly assist in obtaining success in the endeavour.

Project management is not simply drawing charts, or using project management software, or leading teams, or any other technical material. These are all means to an end: helping you control your projects to achieve your goals – on time, on budget, and according to performance standards.

The course will achieve the following objectives:

  • To understand basic project management terminology, methodology and the role of project manager.
  • To understand the fundamentals of Gantt charts, Critical Path Analysis & PERT.
  • To appreciate why projects fail and how failure can be avoided.
  • To appreciate the effect of Project Management on third parties.

  • To understand project management in terms of its project plan construction, identification of appropriate milestones, budget, and consideration of effective project review.

Method and Approach

This programme is intensely interactive. Participants will apply the skills learned on the course directly and immediately to their own writing. The tutoring is supported by a comprehensive manual covering all aspects of the writing process and offering a list of resources for further work, including links to web resources.
